Last Week’s Miles

I’ll just cut to the chase here and say that last week was a very lazy week for me running-wise. I managed to get 1.25 miles in yesterday. Better than nothing, and I knew this was going to be a slow week for miles. I did, however, make the giant hill at the end of my route my b*tch, which I consider to be a major win!

My phone is refusing to cooperate with screenshots, so no MapMyRun photo for this post (sorry!). I’m hoping to have this problem fixed soon!

My plan is to get a few miles in at the gym tomorrow before group training, and then get a couple of night runs in after work this week. Miles to go: 363.75!

Happy Monday!

Isa’s Baked Garlic-Curry Fries

Those of you who follow me on Facebook probably saw this photo that I posted yesterday. I made the official switch to vegan after the first of the year, and so far I love it! I love the way that I feel after a meal, and I especially love all of the fun I’ve been having in the kitchen. I have a fair amount of experience with vegetarian cooking, but vegan cooking is a whole different ballgame (in a very good way), and I’m learning so much!

Three Hundred Sixty Five

So I was browsing Tumblr this morning, and I stumbled upon what is possibly the greatest idea anyone ever came up with. I have set myself a number of running goals so far this year, including completing my first half and full marathons, and I’m honestly very excited at the prospect of achieving them.

But this idea just takes the cake. Here’s the gif I found on Tumblr this morning:

Pure brilliance, right? 365 miles in a year is literally one mile per day. I will obviously be running more than that on average between my training and races. With just the races I have scheduled, I already have 57.4 of those miles in the bag!

So here’s the deal: There will be a weekly post, which will go live each Monday morning. I’ll let you all know how many miles I achieved the week before, and give you a breakdown of each run. Also, assuming my phone cooperates, there will be screenshots from MapMyRun so you can see for certain that I’ve completed each of these runs. This will all hold me accountable to achieve these 365 miles. I hope you’ll all follow along!

Happy Running!
